What's the story?

Here's a new Flopsey image from My Favorite Things - how cute is the bunny reading a book? :) I used up some scraps of patterned paper and paper pieced Flopsey.
So today was my 4th day at work. I'm getting into a regular schedule slowly but surely. I start with 2 hours in kindergarten. The little kids are a great group and some couldn't remember (or pronounce) my name, so those few call me "Mrs. Teacher" :) The kindergarten teacher and I have a table each and the kids rotate from table to table to get their "work" done. After kindergarten recess I go along to 5th grade and perhaps grade some papers or help get a lesson ready, then it's time for 1st grade recess supervision (which is cool because Jamie comes and gives me a huge hug in the playground!). After that I'm with 5th grade for the rest of the time - helping in class, and then I keep an eye on them during recess and lunch before heading home early afternoon.
My time management skills are going to have to be in top form, particularly when I'm doing a school class (as I am now), which can take up a couple of hours a day. I also have to keep up my gym routine, DT work and the wife/mom stuff. I'll get there!

You can do it Toni - you'll get the hang of it all real quick & be on top of your game in no time!
I'm so glad you are enjoying it. It's very rewarding to work with the kids!

Hello "Mrs Teacher"! LOL! That is so cute! Don't you just love how sweet they are in kindergarden?

You sound super busy but I know you can do it! Do you think that once a month you would be up to a TCP challenge with Karrie and I?
